The Scott County Milling Company, operating here one of the largest flour mills of the State, has established a record during the last year. In 1917 the Scott County Milling Company ex ported more com products, which in cluded grits, cream and pearl meal, than any other mill in the United States. About 200,000 barrels of all classes of all products were shipped during that time. It has been generally believed that the corn products would not ship to foreign countries and be sweet when it arrived, but the Scott County Mill ing Company has proven that such is not the case. The amount of mois ture in the, products was reduced from 13 per cent, as formerly, to 10 per cent and every one of their pro ducts arrived in foreign countries in the very choicest condition. With the increased use of corn and its products it is believed that this year's output of the mill will largely exceed that of the previous year.

FARMERS URGED TO ORDER FERTILIZER War Conditions Will Make Mass Shipments Necessary In Fall. Washington, June 1". Farmers are urged by the United States De partment of Agriculture to place or ders at once for fertilizer needed for fall wheat. It is very important, ac cording to W. W. Jlein, assistant to Secretary of Agriculture in charge of the licensing of fertilizer concerns under the Food Control Act, that dealers and manufacturers know far mers' needs as soon as possible, so that orders can be combined and car space used to the best advantage. Transportation difficulties require that freight cars be loaded to their rated capacity. Delay in ordering, it is said, may result in a repetition of last spring's experience when many farmers failed to receive their mixed fertilizer and acid phosphate until after planting time. Of the 1746 American aviators in France a large square of this num- Der are ready to go into th,e air against the enemy, but only 126 have been provided with equipment.
